Unit provides continuous in-line measurement of process viscosity for any industry

KROHNE, Inc., a global technology leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of accurate, reliable and cost effective measuring instruments for the process industries, announces the introduction of the Viscoline Inline Process Rheometer, which provides in-line, continuous measurement of fluid viscosity for process control and monitoring applications. Viscoline is ideal for use wherever viscosity measurement is required for process or quality control. Several proven Viscoline applications are deployed in the cosmetics, food and beverage industries.

The Viscoline is extremely adaptable and can be used for a variety of Newtonian or Non-Newtonian applications, including emulsions, cosmetics, shampoos, ketchup, yogurt, sauces, cheese, paint, resins, oil, plaster, and many, many more. No mechanical process modification is required for accurate viscosity measurements.

The innovative Viscoline uses patented technology based on mixing principles applied to pipes. Bulk viscosity is measured on the whole fluid flow, which is re-homogenized by the action of in-line static mixers.

Viscoline is simple and efficient, with all stainless steel construction, no moving parts and no in-situ calibration required. It features continuous measurement with analog or digital outputs. The unit is extremely reliable, with a repeatability of 0.2 percent, resolution to 0.1cP while meeting government policy on metrological traceability.

Viscoline’s standard hardware configuration features two in-line mixer assemblies, a control box and an Operating and Maintenance manual. Since viscosity is flow dependent, KROHNE flowmeters are often supplied as part of the system. Customized engineering services are available for automation host system integration as well as installation, start-up or complete turnkey service.

KROHNE is a worldwide technological leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of accurate, reliable and cost-effective measuring instruments for the process industries. KROHNE focuses on forming partnerships with its customers to provide them with the most reliable and innovative solutions available in the marketplace.
